There are heart shaped boxes of chocolates, heart cards, heart shaped balloons, confetti, even food shaped as hearts this time of year. These all are great reminders to us as we allow God to change our hearts. We are not responsible for changing the heart (or attitude) of anyone else. I believe God can and will do a much better job than we ever could try to do ourselves! The purpose of caregiving is “showing love to everyone else, while giving God the work of changing My heart”.
Speaking of “hearts”, have you, the caregiver, taken time to have your physical heart checked? Do not forget to have a physical once a year and ladies a mammogram once a year. Keep your heart strong and healthy by exercising regularly, thirty minutes a day, even if you have to break it up into three-ten minute sessions. Walking is just as good as running and is easier on your joints. Keep both your hearts, physical and spiritual, strong!
Scripture for meditation
Hebrews 6:10 “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”
